This has been proved by successful appearances at various festivals dedicated to the genre – WOM festivals, Tanz & Folk Fest in Rudolstadt (Germany), Folk Fiesta (Poland), Druga godba (Slovenia), as well as other concerts and festivals around the world: Musikfest in Bethlehem (USA), Arts Festival Lahore (Pakistan), Folkherbst in Plauen (Germany), Fringe Festivals in Australia and New Zealand (Sydney, Adelaide, Wellington…), Chaoyang Spring Carnival in Beijing, China, and Star Live Club in Beijing. Their widespread reputation has been sealed by appearances at festivals in Hungary, Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia, Russia and Slovenia. In October 2012, the band embarked on a highly successful tour of Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay, playing to Slovenian immigrants. Orlek are also noted for their upbeat club gigs, most notably the 2002 appearance at the legendary CBGB Club in New York. On their second tour of the United States in 2006 they held an extra concert in Philadelphia.
